This season Sylvie Guillem completes her stage career and has kindly agreed to take part in our Festival
I have loved every moment of the last 39 years, and today, I am still loving it in the same way. So why stop? Very simply, because I want to end while I am still happy doing what I do with pride and passion. <….>
I started by skidding to a halt, I have been on an exhilarating journey, and now I’m about to change direction. This is a Life in Progress. My Life.
Guillem is, firstly, The Body: long, lissome, harmoniously proportioned. Diehards could write poetry about her crescent-moon feet alone. But her allure transcends those natural gifts. There is an elegant ease, almost nonchalance, to her dancing. Like all true stars, she doesn’t announce her talent. It’s just there -- undeniable, ineffable.
